Report: Jets Will Sign Buster Skrine

New, comments

There is one cornerback sorted.

According to multiple reports, the Jets will officially sign Buster Skrine. Hopefully it's for the #3 position and no higher.

Skrine is hardly a marquee player but he did have 4 interceptions and 55 tackles last year. Saying that, he has ben rated as one of the worst cornerbacks in the league over the last few years.

Personally I'm not a fan of Skrine and actually think he's a pretty poor player. When I say I would have preferred us to sign Kyle Wilson instead of Skrine, you'll know what I mean.

He did have 11 penalties last year which is significantly higher than you'd want, that's a lot of free yads. He was part of a very good secondary and had a career year with 18 pass defenses but yet he was rated as one of the worst corners in the league by PFF.
